Almost 60% want Brown to “slow down and fundamentally rethink the strategy for ‘Blairite’ reforms of health, education and the other public services”, and to renationalise the railways even if this means putting up taxes.No surprises with any of this really.
But what about this statement in the Sunday Times article:
Party members are not left wing on all issues. Most would back a law to allow terrorist suspects to be held for 90 days, rather than today’s 28-day limit.So, let's get this straight. It's "left wing" to use the power of the state to expropriate much of your income and waste it on all kinds of useless boondoggles, but somehow not "left wing" to use that same state's powers to expropriate your freedom for 90 days.
The issue isn't "left" versus "right", but freedom versus statism.
